Me, Gabor Lazar, am standing to the left, with my wife, Rozalia Lazar (nee Orban); the person between us is our son, Tibor Lazar.
The photo was taken in Covasna in 1972.
My wife, Rozalia Orban, was born on 28th June 1933, here in Kovaszna; she is reformed.
She finished high school in Kovaszna, and she was a clerk at the hospital and at the construction co-operative.
We built up our house with hard work; it belonged to my mother-in-law and was an empty lot; she gave it to us to build a house here.
The construction co-operative built the house, my wife worked there too.
We started it in 1969, we paid for it in installments, we both worked.
So I remember that the greater part of the salary was paid as an installment, and we lived on my wife’s salary; however we finished it step-by-step.
I have a son, Tibor Lazar, he was born in 1959. He finished at the timber vocational school, a technical school in Kezdivasarhely.
He worked here in Kovaszna at the furniture factory, after that he was unemployed for two years, because the factory was liquidated.
Now he works in Kezdivasarhely as a technician in the furniture factory, called Mobexpert.
He leaves every Monday, and comes back on Friday.
He’s very lucky that he doesn’t have to commute, because his mother-in-law lives there and he stays at her place.
